Climatic changes are visible and felt on many areas , like extreme heat in Europe for one week and hailstorms afterwards or extreme monsoom in Northern India . On full moon now in June there was also Local deities day . May the local guardians and the Buddhas be pleased with our accumulation of merit and wisdom .

Lets celebrate Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche’s 100. Birthday together by remembering great spiritual qualities of this extraordinary Nyingma Buddhist master . According to Tibetan calculation he is 101 years old , because they add 9 months in mother’s womb as one additional year.
Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche clarified that those who eat small amounts of meat during Tsog offerings must have the capacity to revive dead animal back to life . Guru Padmasambhava , Yeshe Tshogyal had such siddhis . For others it is better to follow Chatral Rinpoche’s advise and be veg . Happy 100 birthday, Chatral Rinpoche .From the selected texts we can see that Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche teaches the Buddhist Dharma in accordance with Guru Padmasambhava teaching : Descend with the View, asccend with the conduct . It is most important to understand
how to unite the View of Shunyata /Voidness with the Conduct . This is Buddhist path toward liberation and enlightenment or the Fruit of Dharmakaya realisation . Lets pray for many more years of Chatral Sangye Dorje, with verses by Dudjom Rinpoche II.

Part of a series on Tibetan Buddhism
Chatral Rinpoche, Sangye Dorje (Tibetan: བྱ་བྲལ་སངས་རྒྱས་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Wylie: Bya-bral Sangs-rgyas Rdo-rje) (born 1913) is a Dzogchen master in his mid-90s. He is a reclusive yogi known for his great realization and strict discipline. Rinpoche is one of the few living disciples of Khenpo Ngagchung and is widely regarded as one of the most highly realized Dzogchen yogis. In addition to his relationship with Khenpo Ngagchung, Chatral Rinpoche also studied with some of the last century’s most renowned masters, including Dudjom Rinpoche, Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, and the famed dakiniSera Khandro. Rinpoche is one of the primary lineage holders of the Longchen Nyingthig, and in particular the lineage that descends through Jigme Lingpa’s heart son Jigme Gyalwe Nyugu and then on to Patrul Rinpoche.
Rinpoche currently divides his time between Salbhari, India, and Kathmandu, Nepal. He has two daughters, Tara Devi and Saraswati, with his wife Kamala.
Chatral Rinpoche gives this advice to all :
NAMO GURU BHYA “Homage to the Spiritual Master.”
Words of Advice
By Chatral Rinpoche
Precious master of unrepayable kindness, Pema Ledrel Tsal,
I pray that you remain as the crown ornament
On the top of my head.
Grant your blessings so that we may find freedom here and now
From all the sufferings of samsara and its lower realms!
Listen well, my dear disciples who are gathered here.
For all those whose hearts have not been spoiled, consider this:
The chances of finding a human existence are one in a hundred.
Now that you have found one,
If you fail to practice the sublime Dharma,
How could you possibly expect
To find such an opportunity again?
This is why it is crucial
That you take advantage of your situation.
Conceiving of your body as a servant
Or a thing to ferry you about,
Don’t allow it to rest in idleness for even a single moment.
Use it well,
Another well known promoter of Veg diet in previous centuries was Shabkar Lama . On Shabkar.org we find explanation about Chatral Rinpoche’s opposing of meat eating :
Opponent of meat eating
Chatral Rinpoche is one of the most vocal opponents of meat eating in Tibetan Buddhism.
If you take meat, it goes against the vows one takes in seeking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Because when you take meat you have to take a being’s life. So I gave it up.
Source: Compassionate Action, chapter 2 [download PDF- 145 KB]
Meat, the sinful food, is not permitted according to the three vows: the vows of individual liberation, the Bodhisattva vows and the tantric vows. Thus Buddha stated: “I have never approved, do not approve, and will never approve of a meat diet.” He declared: “my followers must never eat meat.”

Rinpoche considers that becoming a vegetarian can be a gradual path. Many of his students do not eat meat, fish and egg, nor drink alcohol, but some of them do.
There are lamas who eat meat and those who don’t. At my monastery in Tibet there are also lamas who take meat and those who don’t.

Chatral Rinpoche also releases large amounts of fish** from the Calcutta fish markets every year (see video recording 2002 and video recording 2004). Rinpoche composed a song about this practise of saving lives, tsethar (Ch: fangsheng):Benefits of Saving Lives [download PDF- 116 KB]
Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche is in manyfold ways inspiration for all of us in Veg movement on this planet . Humanity against Monsanto and GMO seeds is another compassionate activity that we promote together with many others .
I am just an ordinary practitioner ~ Chatral Rinpoche: “Some of the Lamas, teachers and practitioners are ignorant. Because they want to eat meat and drink alcohol, they say that it is necessary since they are followers of Guru Rinpoche, who ate meat and drank alcohol. But Guru Rinpoche was born miraculously, not like those Lamas who were born from human parents…. With supernatural powers gained through certain meditations, it is true that there are some realized beings who can revive animals from the dead and help them reach a higher rebirth or Enlightenment by consuming small amounts of their flesh. But this is not done for sustenance, only for the purpose of helping that animal. I personally do not have that power and because of that I never eat meat. Eating meat in one’s diet is much different than eating flesh to liberate a being through supernatural powers. I am just an ordinary practitioner who really doesn’t have these qualities. So, if I ate meat it would be the same if you or any other lay person ate meat. I would be committing sin and I would be getting negative karma. I don’t pretend as if I have special powers and eat meat, I just avoid it altogether.”

My realization is higher than the sky,
But my observance of karma is finer than grains of flour.

Many Vajrayana Buddhists ignore this advice of Guru Padmasambhava and behave with “crazy wisdom”…
Vajrayana teachers who behave with “crazy wisdom” also don+t quote this Advice of Guru Padmasambhava .

Tashi Vegan Delek . Really good explanation by Nick Ribush : And veganism is not only good for the animals; it’s also good for the planet and, as I said, good for one’s own health. Do some research; check it out. Vegans advocate for an end to animal slavery, an end to the selfish and callous exploitation of others, an end to speciesism. I wonder if people advocating for the end of human slavery were seen the same way. They probably were … and look how right they turned out to be!

TaraTulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche For many Buddhists it is very easy to quote and share Buddhas wisdom , but they still eat meat and dairy food because of ignorance and attachment to blood in meat . One can not cheat the Buddha with such pretensions . As it is said : Compassion beginns on the dinner table . Before that people express empty words and lip service , making themselves important
Ruth Snow Compassion does indeed begin on the dinner table. Thank you. Shared. Tashi delek _()_
